Cookout is the quintessential down south, quickserve burger/fast food/shakes place. It is synonymous with NC for me at this point. Order a Cookout tray and one of their 40 different varieties of Milkshake and enjoy clogging your arteries while pleasing your soul! All for a low, low price. While it’a gonna run you more than a McDonald’s combo it’s less for a Cookout tray than 1 small cheeseburger (with no fries) at Five Guys! And you also get service damn near as fast as McDonald’s. The longest wait is in the Drive-Thru to order, but you just might have a piping hot bag in your hand at the same time as they handing you your card bag from paying. Mmmm…grease! 😋 FYI…this is the opposite of a sit-down. Ain’t no tables and chairs. You either going thru the Drive-Thru or grabbing our meal at the walk-up window like Pookie grabbing his fix. Cookout literally must sprinkle crack on the food because fiens…i mean customers be lined up around the corner like it was a crack house in New Jack City from the early 90’s. 😎

Food's good but attitudes of staff are pretty rude and it's a real headache how long the lines get at night. There have been multiple times where I'm craving a late night snack, drive 10 minutes to get over here, then just turn around and go home because I can tell it's an hour+ wait time line.

Food always slaps but the service gets worse every time I go. Employees are rude on the intercom and snappy when you ask for more than one thing. And I swear it's doubled in price in the last 5 years!

Hidden gem, I've heard a great deal about the place, and I really enjoyed the experience. Burger (Dbl brgr w/ cheese all the way) was well prepared and great. Overall friendly service, fast and courteous.

Too slow!!! Plus they rush you to order and I wanted the small tray meal. They serve you the one that costs the most. Make sure you request a receipt and add up the price and cost. They are trying to outsmart customers.

There was nowhere to park so I used a lot across the street, the group in front me repeatedly threatened the cashier (who responded with obscenities), and I had a flat tire when I walked back to my car. They have fantastic shakes and their quesadilla sauce works great!

Cook Out used to serve pretty good food, but the quality of their food has decreased greatly, which was a real disappointment to me. I ordered the onion rings. They had no taste. All the flavor was in the breading, which crumbled away at the first bite, so then I was left with a greasy ring of nothing.

Hot dog and onion rings were great. Hush puppies were a little heavy but still tasted great. Chocolate cherry shake is my new favorite. And the value is awesome.
